ROYKSOPP & ROBYN - SINGLE REVIEW

Royksopp & Robyn - Do It Again 
Royksopp & Robyn - Do It Again

Release Date: 28th April 2014

It's not often that bona fide pop royalty knocks on the door of LWM towers (metaphorically, of course) but when Royksopp and Robyn call round for a cup of sugar the very least you can do is give their new collaborative work a wee listen. 'Do It Again' is the warning shot of a single from the album that comes out in May and boy oh boy is it huge. From the get-go the pulsing beat, dubstep bass and trance melodies hit you with full force to get even those in traction bobbing their heads and jerking their limbs. Oh, and then there's Robyn's breathy vocal urging you to let go of your inhibitions and, in her words, "the thing you did, just do it again". The lyrics might not be Shakespeare but this is an absolutely storming dance single fronted by one of the all time great pop vocalists. Be prepared to do your nut to this at festivals all over the world this summer: hedonism just found a new soundtrack.
